Places to visit
There are over 200 recreational trails (walking tracks, mountain bike trails, scenic touring routes) and more than 260 camping and picnic sites across Victoria's State forests.
Detailed information on all these activities can be viewed via an online interactive map called Forest Explorer. Use it to plan your next walking or camping trip and even create and save your own customized maps. This short Guide to using Forest Explorer explains its key features and functions to help you get the most out of it.
Below are some examples of the type of maps and supporting information you can view on Forest Explorer.
In addition to Forest Explorer, a range of downloadable forest recreation notes are published by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, which provide information on places to visit, minimal impact use and recreational activities in Victoria's State forests.
